Understanding the Number Prefixes

In the Philippines, the telecom companies us a prefix number to easily identify a mobile number’s network. It is called prefix number since it can be found at the the beginning of the 11-digit phone number.

For example, if your phone number is 09123456789, then your prefix number is 0912. In some instances, the number is based on the international format. The Philippines’ country code (63) is being used in the beginning rather than 0. In this case, 09123456789 will become 639123456789. Then you are thinking, is 6391 the prefix number? Well, the answer is NO!

When you encounter a number in the international format, just replaced 63 with 0. Using the example above, your prefix number will still be 0912. By checking at the table below, we can then say that the mobile network of 09123456789 is TNT.
